important information for cms parents and students ~ parent permission needed as soon as possible
In order to allow teachers and students to communicate in a live format, the D5 Technology and Instructional Technology Departments have been working diligently to provide a platform that is safe for both students and teachers. As a Google for Education District, teachers may choose to use Google Meet as we move forward with Distance Learning. All sessions will be recorded and made available for students who are not able to attend. It is recommended that a parent be in the home while these sessions are taking place; however, we understand that may not always be possible.We are glad to be able to provide this platform so that our teachers can be more interactive with students.
In order for your child to participate in these live sessions, we must have parent/guardian permission. Please click HERE to complete the permission form.
If we do not hear back from you, your child will not be able to participate, so please complete and submit this form as soon as possible.
Thank you for all you are doing during this time of learning for us all!
